Willingdon, Wannock and Jevington

ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENTS: Dr Lindsay Ford is currently working as a dentist in Brighton after qualifying eight years ago. But she also has another passion and has trained in Harley Street, specialising in facial aesthetic treatments, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers to provide a very natural younger look. Many of her patients in Brighton have taken advantage of this extra skill of Lindsay’s over the past three years. But, thirty two year old Lindsay has now moved from Brighton to Willingdon with husband Chris, and they have a year old daughter Grace. Lindsay is keen to work in Willingdon concentrating solely on her facial aesthetics to avoid the long journeys each day. Her parents-in-law live in Willingdon and are happy to look after Grace, when needed, so it all makes sense. Back in January 2015, Lindsay started in a small way, working from Anji’s hair salon at 29a Church Street on Saturdays and in the evening. It proved to be popular and after much thought, Anji has now completely re-vamped her salon, allowing for a separate beautiful new clinic for Lindsay, where her clients can receive privacy. It has taken a lot of imagination, but it all looks great, and the hair salon, with its white walls, large mirrors, flowers, and a new welcoming and seating area still leaves plenty of room for both Anji’s and Lindsay’s clients. Check out Lindsay’s website at www.drlindsayford.co.uk or call her on 07856 624293 for more information or a free consultation. On Sunday December 13 from 1pm to 4pm there will be an official launch with Bubbles and Nibbles, to which everyone is welcome.

A QUIET DAY: Will be held at St Mary’s Church Willingdon from 10.30am to 4pm tomorrow, Saturday, led by Stephen Weaver. Please bring a packed lunch and £5. Tea and coffee will be provided from 10am and at lunchtime. Spend all or part of the day at the church. All are welcome. Stephen has worked as a teacher and priest and is now a psychotherapist in London.

GIFT DAY: Sunday has been chosen as Gift Day. It is an annual event in the church calendar when you are asked to give an extra donation to St Mary’s Church to help with the upkeep and maintenance of this beautiful and ancient building, which is part of Willingdon’s heritage. So many churches throughout the land have fallen into disrepair through lack of finance and it would be a shame if this were to happen to St Mary’s. Even those who are not regular church goers may wish to help prevent this from happening. Please contact the church office on 01323 501763 or Fr Kevin Agnew on 01323 502079 for further information or if you would like to help in any way.

PARISH MAGAZINE: If you would like to advertise in the monthly Willingdon Parish Magazine which gets quite a large readership, please ring Hazel Thorn on 01323 487417 for further information, cost and sizing.

LONELY AT CHRISTMAS: A new initiative is being considered at St Mary’s Church for people who may be on their own on Christmas Day and would like some company and a meal cooked for them. It would be held in the church hall and is not just for church goers but for anyone in the local community who would otherwise be on their own. The cost would be kept to a minimum, just to cover the food. Please ring Mrs Susan Freeman on 01323 505833 for further information. If there is no answer, please leave a message and Susan will get back to you.

BRITISH QUEEN: Desperate Measures will be entertaining customers at the British Queen at 8.30pm tomorrow, Saturday.
